HTTP Error 500.52 - URL Rewrite Module Error
Just got a ticket from a college of mine telling me that he gets HTTP 500.52 error while browsing to all sites (IIS).
The specific error he got was “The configuration section "’system.webserver/rewrite/outboundrules’ cannot be read because it is missing a section declaration”
Apparently this is related to BAD installation of the Url rewrite module 2 – it didn't add 3 sections to the applicationhost.config file (outboundRules,rewriteMaps,allowedServerVariables) while it was successfully installed.
I fixed that by reinstalling / repairing the “Microsoft URL Rewrite Module 2 for IIS 7” (could also simply put the missing 3 items)
Hope this helps
